Modified live viral core vaccine for cats
The best protection against many viral diseases is vaccination. In cats Rhinotracheitis Virus (a herpes virus), Panleukopaenia (a parvovirus) and Calici Virus are all serious diseases. Vaccination is an extremely safe and highly effective way to prevent these illnesses.
Virbac’s cat core vaccine, Feligen RCP®, is a modified live viral vaccine. These are the most up to date technology, providing strong and long-lasting immunity without the need for adjuvants. Adjuvants are immune stimulants that need to be added into killed vaccines for them to be effective, and they are also the cause of most adverse events associated with vaccines, such as pain and swelling at the site of injection.
Panleukopaenia (sometimes called Pan-Luke) in particular is an extremely serious disease, being highly infectious, very common and severely life-threatening. Not only does vaccinating your cat help prevent it from getting this horrible disease, but it can also help stop your cat spreading the disease to other cats and kittens.
We recommend vaccinating kittens at 8 weeks of age, 12 weeks and 16 weeks. Annual boosters are recommended after that.
